Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 31 -- Movie Ticket Sales.

Not Buying What Hollywood Is Selling-

The number of movie tickets sold is down over the past few years (and it's probably not because more people are sneaking in):

Last year, The Passion of the Christ singlehandedly prevented an even greater slump.

Source:
Entertainment Weekly magazine.

Hollywood really should not worry, however. Just look at the movies coming out this summer:

May 19-
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen

May 26-
The Longest Yard
Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Burt Reynolds

June 3-
Cinderella Man
Russell Crowe, Renee Zellweger

June 17-
Batman Begins
Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Katie Holmes

June 24-
Bewitched
Will Ferrell, Nicole Kidman

Not to mention Herbie: Fully Loaded
Lindsay Lohan

June 29-
War of the Worlds
Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Tim Robbins

July 8-
Fantastic Four
Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis

July 15-
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Johnny Depp, Freddie Highmore


The Wedding Crashers

Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Christopher Walken

And that's only the half of it.

Likely outcome: several movies that would otherwise be successful will tank because of all the competition.

What has ever happened to the Truth Laid Bear? The eco system thing?...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at April 30, 2005 11:27 AM

It was slow to load, so I took it off to unclutter the sidebar. I may add it back sometime, but it loads from the Truth Laid Bear's server, so if he is having slowness, it would cause my site to be slow...
